This year, we attended the Habanos Festival in Havana, Cuba, celebrating the launch of the new Quai d’Orsay Especial d’Orsay and the Trinidad 55th Anniversary Robusto Extra. Both cigars were introduced to celebrate their respective anniversaries, adding special significance to the festival.

The Habanos Festival began in late February, and we decided to capture each day in a vlog format. The first two days of the trip have already been uploaded to our channel, with links provided below.

The festival kicked off with the Habanos World Challenge, where contestants from around the globe competed in various challenges, including blind tastings, panel questions, and even a sketch. We closely followed the Canadian importer Havana House through every segment of the contest.

The festival largely consists of panel meetings, tasting sessions, and conferences, delivering valuable information to both industry professionals and the press. The highlight of the festival occurs in the evenings, featuring live music, food, and cigars that enhance the night’s experience.

This year’s festival also celebrated the 50th anniversary of Quai d’Orsay and the 55th anniversary of Trinidad. A new cigar, the Especial d’Orsay for Quai d’Orsay, was introduced, measuring 6 inches in length with a ring gauge of 53. This vitola, known as the Sobresalientes, was previously used for the Romeo y Julieta 2016 Edición Limitada.

To commemorate Trinidad’s 55th anniversary, Habanos reintroduced the Robusto Extra, a cigar discontinued in 2012 but now available in limited quantities for the duty-free market.
